Paul, did you not make the same suggestion,in a earlier top, for. Regular swing?

Sure did. Great for putting too.
interesting idea. Even if great champs like Gary Player advocate for waiting for the sound of the ball falling into the cup, might be a better way (and thus avoiding the “stress” when you can’t hear anything…).
Plus as the member above mentioned you can’t watch the break if you are watching the ball.
Hi Paul. This tip is very good advice foe another reason. If you wait too long to look at the putt, you won’t know the break of the putt if it goes past the hole.
Great reason why you shouldn’t be watching the ball. Thanks.
I have another way OF not lifting m’y head too early ‘I don’t look at the ball at all ,I FIX a point 3 inches in front OF the ball over which the ball must travel .When I look up ,the ball is on it’s way .
Putting this way makes the putter head go through the ball ,and make it roll ,as opposed to the putter head ” hitting ” the ball .
Good suggestion for those who want to try it.

Is it helpful to look at a particular part of the ball for a proper path or is that overthinking it? (Especially on shorter putts)
I don’t get too fixed on the ball but others do. This can stop coming out of putts. I really wouldn’t be looking at a particular part it it though as this could effect your weight distribution. Look at the front and you may lean left. Back you may lean back. I would be looking at the label in the center of the ball. This is what I do but like I said I am not getting frozen over it. If I find myself coming out of it I look at it until I see the putter hit the ball then I watch the ball rolling to the target.

Another disadvantage of not looking until you hear it hit the cup is you don’t get any feedback as to how the ball rolled, the break it took and whether or not your read was correct. I need this information and always want to watch the ball track to the hole. Like you said, the key is just not looking up too soon.

Exactly. I don’t like this at all. There is no need for it.
